After completing our initial support-raising in 2013, we began serving full time with FamilyLife in the Advisor Department where we came alongside Pastors and church leaders to provide expert guidance on hosting marriage events and small groups within their church and community. Late in 2015, Bob was invited to change departments to work directly with Weekend to Remember and lead a team of Ministry Representatives as North Central Division Manager.
In the summer of 2018, Bob was asked to step up into the seat of National Director - providing leadership to the manager team for all 93 Weekend to Remember events! Bob has five managers reporting to him with more than 50 staff in the department (team photo below, Bob in near left in Husker RED/WHITE, of course :). The top priority will be to shepherd well with vision, passion, compassion and purpose in every step. There is also a high level of engagement and collaboration with numerous other departmental leaders. Pam continues to work alongside Bob with direct responsibility for one event (Delray Beach), while still helping with the Nebraska events and assisting in the growth of some department-wide efforts.
Our ministry has grown over the years and it is both exciting and humbling to watch how God has blessed and guided the work of our hands for His glory!
For this kind of diligent, consistent and faithful work, Philippians 2:1-2 provides a beautiful path for working together: "Is there any encouragement from belonging to Christ? Any comfort from his love? Any fellowship together in the Spirit? Are your hearts tender and compassionate? Then make me truly happy by agreeing wholeheartedly with each other, loving one another, and working together with one mind and purpose."
